ST13. VISION OF RAMA

a poem by Rajaram Ramachandran, India - poetry writer, author, poet

SAINT THYAGARAJA

While chanting, very often,
The Saint had a vision
Of Rama in different pose
Before him, very close.

At that time, in ecstasy,
He found it very easy
To dance and sing,
Out came then a song.

On one occasion he sang,
In Raga Bilahari a song,
That described this vision,
And his heartfelt jubilation.

(He sang in Telugu:
Kanukondanee Sriramunee Nedu)

“I saw the Lord today,
Sri Ramachandra Murthy,
Sita Rama of Solar race,
That satisfied my eyes.”

“His brothers, Lakshmana,
Bharatha, Satrughuna,
In deep worship stood
Reverently by his side.”

“The Wind-God’s son,
Haruman was there then
Bowing at Rama’s feet,
It was a pleasant sight!”

“Sugreeva and others
Were saying their prayers.
I saw all these scenes
Today, with my eyes.”

It’s really no wonder
If his songs live forever,
As they came from his heart,
That was true and honest.
